I suggest taking a look at the Snapgear devices, now bought by Cyberguard 
(-> www.snapgear.com). They deliver excellent value for the money. When I 
bought mine about three years ago or so it was the only device under $1000 
where you could switch off NAT and enable transparent/bridged routing of 
public IP addresses. I don't know if it still is. They actively maintain 
the firmware (an embedded Linux version) and just delivered a completely 
rewritten interface, new kernel and much more functionality. The one thing 
from your list which is missing is traffic graphing, however, you can add 
this with ntop on one of your machines.
